Alii Tiki wrote to me on the Tiki Finds page so I wanted to keep track of his information. Thank you Alii Tiki. Thomas Barnes also sent my photos and link to the family and I've asked to friend them on facebook. This is a very special find and we are so excited. Thank goodness for Tiki Central it rocks along with all who join in the fun.


Beautiful score Dan & Wendy !!!

I have some info for you about the carver see the links at the bottom of my post here:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=1099&forum=5&vpost=675774

The Kimitete family is renowned as carvers, I think based off the age of yours it was likely carved by Joseph Kimitete, look at the information in the top link in my post (Kai Ehitu History).

Lunavideogames thank you are you going to be at Oasis? We just can't get enough tiki!

I've spent the day glazing and staying out of the double digit heat. Cheers, Wendy

I think the '40's Hula girl you found proves that the many "Nipples" votes over the past year haven't been because we are a bunch of puerile perverts stuck in arrested development, but rather purists hearkening for the preservation and perpetuation of a well loved tradition.....

yea that's it.

Love the first batch of vacation pictures...And I'm so glad "the wendy and dan show" will have part two very soon.

dartharnie a great statement. I'll have to keep the tradition going. Part two coming up.

hang10tiki like your head at Caliente. Terrific finds really make collecting over the top fun.

VampiressRN you too, we are looking forward to seeing your Witco world hung in your dining room.

PART II of our Kon Tiki Adventour and trip down the Oregon coast.

We traveled to Oregon visiting family. We stopped in Oakland, Oregon to go to a favorite shop that always has tikis. It was locked. While Dan got upset I tried to spot the tikis we would miss when I saw the owner. I banged on the glass window and she let us in. She remembered us from a prior visit. Dan found some really good wooden moai.

Here is her display. She also has shirts.

We made it to Portland in three days and checked into the Kon Tiki Hotel. The Marriot Red Lion on the River.

We went the next day to the 1600 booth Antique Expo. In all there were four booths that had a tiny amount of tikis. Dan found this lamp

and this tiki and it made it a good time. We walked for 2.5 hours to find these two.


Tiki Kon starts!

Maholo Tiki who had my work up front in their booth. It's good to have friends.

Car show.

CY in front of his incredible tiki art.

Mikey Tiki and his lady at the Bosko lecture.


Trader Vic's Portland with Gregory who with Jason ran the show. Good Job Guys!


Polynesian Patti and Moai Mike at the bar.


Brunch at the Alibi with Audrey, Dan

and Big Toe.


We toured the Munktiki Home and studio. We have a lot in common.


This is their personal collection of their works.


This is Paul with Dan. We love his and his son Miles work.


Hale Tiki

With a flash it was much lighter.




On the Road Home.

In Lincoln City, Oregon in 2001 Dan found a 2.5 foot tall Kava Kava man in this antique store. This time he found a small one for $18 while in the glass case there was a similar one for $85. He took home the cheaper one.

We found a cannibal fork but it didn't grab Dan so back in the glass case it went. I'm sad.

Then we went to another antique store and found a PNG mask that was so much like Dan he had to have it.

Outside of the Ripley's Belive it or Not building I ran into Bigfoot.

In the pamphlet I found this photo that shows where Aloha Joes got the inspiration for their mug and menu cover. MadDogMike made one for he swap years ago. Post a photo here MDM.

At the next gift store I found a PNG carving. All one piece of wood with two faces an alligator and a bird. $15 a steal.

On to a wild animal park with lots of baby's to pet. This is a bobcat.

Across from our hotel in Bandon, Oregon there was a super cool beach with lots of rocks.

We found one that looked like Dan. First the mask and now the rock. What's next?

We couldn't get into this park because no one showed up to open it. After 20 minutes we left.

We decided to take our tiki loot and head home. The last stop was where we found the tiki with a story that I posted above. We had a wonderful trip.

Next up will be Tiki Oasis 13. Cheers, Wendy

Yes, I will be at Tiki Oasis! (I live right by the hotel ) It will be a good time and Emily and I hope to see you and Dan. Reminds me that I still need to get tickets, so I will do that right now...

Nice pictures. I also like the Munktiki studio picture. I notice that they have some cool colors of the Skull Monkey mug. I have him in yellow and I think he is the mug I drink from the most!

I am working until 5 today, but I am determined to get to the Tonga Hut tonight, so I am going to drive quickly to LA after work. Should be fun! I will try to take some pictures.

Wendy, looks like you had a great time. Glad Dan got lots of loot as his collection was looking a bit thin in places

Here's a pic of that Aloha Jhoe's mug I did for the Menu Art Swap a few years back (with a drinking straw in his right "horn")

Looks like such fun! I'm thinking the t-rex may have eaten everyone at the park to let you in. Makes me miss the dinosaur that used to be near the Dixon exit, or Milk Farm rd. off 80!

Wendy, sounds like a great trip- welcome back! I hope you didn't have to rent too big a trailer to haul back all of those finds along the way! Congrats on a great tiki hunting trip!

Dan's posing took away all need for photoshopping (well, except for Jon's work)- thanks, Dan!

Jon, great job on "BigGrog," and Mike, love that (older) Art Swap piece!

Looks like a really fun trip, thanks for taking us along

(I also noticed that giant lizard looks a bit like Dan too, something strange is going on here, you need to get his DNA checked, he may not be of this world)
